Story:
In September 2010, the Danish daily newspaper Berlingske published my photograph of an 18 months old orphan from Nepal. Born with several serious birth defects, the baby girl was lying in a hospital room. Alone and waiting to die. The medical staff had no means to help her.

The feature story from Nepal gave way to an abundance of reactions. But one reader, 36-year old Cecilie M. Hansen, took it one step further. Having seen the picture of the abandoned girl, she decided to travel to Nepal to try to save the little girl with the big head.
